Category Archives: SAG Awards


When I think of the SAG Awards, I think of all of the carefully shared DVD’s sent out to all actors in Hollywood, who are members of the Screen Actors Guild. Not only are little actors waiting for their break thought about by SAG but they are also invited to watch every DVD/ film/ TV show and cast their votes too.

That’s what’s always good about SAG. Today though let’s let Washington Posts Celebritology blog direct from the nation’s capitol, share their views of the way the SAG Awards snubs and winners went down this year with some guest commentary. Here we go:

The SAG Award Snubs:

Glee”: Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer and the ensemble were all ignored while awards instead went to White, Alec Baldwin and the cast of “Modern Family.” Lynch’s loss may have been the most shocking given her track (suit) record of consistent victories.

“Mad Men”: The AMC period piece has won the prize for best TV drama ensemble for the past two years. The streak was broken Sunday night, courtesy of a big win for “Boardwalk Empire.”

“The Social Network”: Jesse Eisenberg and the cast were overlooked in their respective categories, which means that the Facebook movie walked away empty-handed.

Gosh. Paz de la Huerta makes you really have to redefine red carpet wining style and beauty really. Her visage is fantastic to spice up the red carpet actors set. She adds variety. Congratulations to a SAG Award Winner 2001. Like Natalie Portman Paz was studying acting in New York as a child actor with big hopes to one day lead the pack. Today she is.

In terms of ‘the typical red carpet appeal of stars styling go’ – perhaps the contestants of the Ru Paul’s Drag Race, reality TV show craze here in the US, can be employed by Paz to give her some make up and style tips – now that Paz is in the show biz fast lane that comes with pay hikes and lucrative magazine shoots too.

They’re all looking to move from D-List to C-List, quicker than you can throw a party at Bar Eleven tonight and get your freak on watching the show –as a Hollywood Club attraction, here in West Hollywood, where many of Ru’s contestants and friends live.

In any event, America loves Paz just the way she is. To learn how Paz de la Huerta put the hard yards into her acting/ show biz career today from the age of 4 – read up here.

“When alcohol was outlawed, outlaws became kings”–TV show premise by writer Terence Winter. & director Martin Scorsese.

In coming to grips with Boardwalk Empire‘s [the HBO TV series also known as Подпольная империя] ’upset win’ over American TV staple Mad Men, in the SAG Awards best TV ensemble win last night (Sunday), The Hollywood Reporter writes that they should have seen this coming.

Hindsight is always that gift, that leaves you scrambling if you got something a little off point to realign and straighten your lopsided hat.

Writes The Reporter in typical quirky awards style –”In the Martin Scorsese-directed kickoff episode of Boardwalk Empire, the nude flapper floozy Lucy (Paz de la Huerta) flops her boobs at the camera, bouncing atop Atlantic City gangster Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi), and bellowing nasally, “GIDDYAP, COWBOY!” “Stop with the ‘cowboy’ sh[*]t!” snaps Nucky.”

Contact music reports: Steve Buscemi, who ‘plays corrupt politician Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson in the crime drama, beat Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Hugh Laurie (House) to win the SAG’s first trophy. Taking the stage to accept his win, Buscemi paid tribute to his fellow nominees, and Boardwalk’s cast and crew, saying: “Im very nervous. I want to tip my hat to Bryan Cranston, Michael C. Hall, Jon Hamm and Hugh Laurie, it’s an honour to be nominated with you. I want to thank the amazing crew on Boardwalk, they’ve been a second family to us.”‘

In addition, THR, notes ‘David Thomson called his pre-Boardwalk persona a “babyfaced thug, sleazeball, scumbag,” but now he’s the big thug, his baby face gone gaunt, and he makes the top-dog role his own.’

Gosh – gangsta noir dramas of the USA, bootleg political climates are the backdrop of exciting cable Television drama – a genre that is always edgier than mainstream TV. Film noir narratives are a hotly sought after genre, perhaps denoting entertainment grit with characters that are slightly more layered in their writing and creation, than Glee for example. Lol!
